With works by Clementi, Czerny and Cramer, Urtext Primo 6 contains easy piano music by three composers who all stood out as piano teachers publishing piano methods and study literature. Not only is there a selection of popular sonatinas by Muzio Clementi, there are also selected pieces by Carl Czerny which show that piano lessons do not necessarily have to be outdated and stuffy, and there also exists a repertoire by Johann Baptist Cramer (known from the studies of Cramer-Bülow) which is suitable not only for advanced students.
(...) Dr Franke has uncovered a host of musical gems by three composers whose numerous Studies are all included in regular practice schedules but the discovery of these novel pieces will certainly entice all Intermediate students to make audiences more aware of the other side of these well-known composers.

(...) A most enterprising and useful addition that should encourage aspiring pianists to expand on their repertoire at a crucial time in their development.

(...) For teachers, too, these volumes offer superb source-books for a wider range of this great piano music than is typically explored. I know that I will personally be digging into these pieces, and using the books with teenage and older students.
The detailed and authoritative editing, spot-on fingering and excellent engraving all help to make these publications stand out from the crowd, and the brilliant section of performance notes and tips at the back of each book confirm the whole series as an essential purchase for all who are involved in piano education.
